Types Of BBL Shapes – Which Shape Is Right for You?

A BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) has undeniably become one of the most popular forms of aesthetic surgery, including in the US where many people undergo cosmetic procedures to achieve their ideal look. However, this is not just a one-size-fits-all procedure. There are a variety of BBL shapes you can choose from, depending on your personal goals.

Let’s have a look at the different types of BBL shapes, so you can better decide which one is right for you!

The Different BBL Shapes

Upside-Down Heart Shape Or A-Shaped

The most popular choice among women is the upside-down heart or A-shape butt. Many women opt for this choice since it allows them to feel sexy while showing off their femininity. Picture the perfect, classic hourglass silhouette. That is what your surgeon would help you achieve through this procedure.

The heart shape BBL requires liposuction from the patient’s lower back and flanks. These fat grafts are transferred to your rump to add volume and definition. Your waist is therefore slimmed and narrowed, and your hips are widened, creating beautiful and gentle curves.

Round, Bubble, Or O-Shaped

If you’re looking for something a bit more dramatic than the A-shaped butt, we recommend the round, bubble, or O-shaped BBL. Your surgeon will perform liposuction on your love handles and lateral thighs. This fat is transferred to your central butt cheeks and lateral hips. The focus here is on the upper and middle parts of the butt.

The result of this operation is a curvaceous, rounded butt and figure. There will be a significant and noticeable increase in the volume and shapeliness of your rump. The round BBL shape is a popular choice for those with V-shaped behinds.


If you’re looking for a combination of the above two, then consider the curvy-shaped BBL. Maybe you simply desire a slightly curvier figure rather than a specific exaggerated shape. Or perhaps you have a desirable shape already and simply want to enhance your features.

Ask your doctor about this customizable option. Remember that they are the ones who have control over the level of volume and projection they create in your bum during the surgery. So make sure you communicate efficiently so they can provide you with your dream butt.

Also, remember to enquire about diet during surgery recovery, as well as gather information about the BBL swelling process. This will ensure that you can take proper care of yourself post-operation.

Which One Is Right For You?

This is a question you should discuss with your plastic surgeon during your consultation. Various factors influence your ability to achieve a specific shape. These factors include your natural shape and proportions as well as your skin tone or laxity. For example, if you have an H-shaped bum, the A-shaped BBL may be your best bet. This is based on factors such as fat distribution, waist size, and the amount of fat you have available for transfer.

Another good candidate for an A-shaped BBL is that lucky individual who already has the sought-after upside-down heart booty. In this case, your body type and butt shape are the factors that determine the BBL that will suit your best. Someone in this position could just want to increase their bum size and perkiness. Your surgeon will be able to provide advice on which Brazilian butt lift shape will be right for you so that you can enjoy a more curvaceous figure.

There are various exciting shapes to choose from for your BBL. Making a choice is a journey in itself. Just ensure that you work with a doctor with ample experience who can provide you with the results you’ve been longing for.
